NASB serves as an advocate for public education and local school governance. The Association strives to serve its members, and inspires its members to work as a team with legislators and state officials to secure laws and regulations that benefit Nebraska’s public schools. One of the Association’s advocacy goals is to represent the interests of school board members with our state lawmakers. NASB lobbies in support of the school boards, guided by the legislative agenda that is developed by the Legislation Committee. The Legislative agenda is initiated each year with the submission of local board proposals/legislative resolutions. Our advocacy team also monitors state and federal legislative developments and communicates to our members’ legislative activities, updates on state and federal laws, court decisions and other legal issues for public schools.
